9780091781934: Modern Ballroom Dancing

This guide traces the history of dancing, showing how modern dances orginated and developed, the influence of jazz and Latin-American music, the supremacy of the "English Style" and trends since the war to the present day. It also provides detailed descriptions of all the most popular ballroom dances: the four classics - waltz, foxtrot, quickstep and tango; the Viennese waltz; the standard Latin-American dances - rumba, samba, cha-cha-cha, paso doble; jive; rock 'n' roll; and disco dancing. Victor Silvester won the World's Professional Dancing Championships in 1922.
